A ghaoil, saoil am faigh mi thu? My love, will you be mine?

Cha ghabh mi fhin an tillear I will not take the tailor
Cha ghabh, cha ghabh, chan ill leam I will not, I don't want him
   
Cha ghabh mi fhin an ceannaiche I will not take the merchant
Bidh eallach de chuid chich air His burden is other people's belongings
   
Cha ghabh mi fhin an tuathanach I will not take the farmer
Bidh ruaig airson a' mhil air He is always chasing people for rent
   
Ach 's e mo ghaol an seladair But my love is the sailor
Air brd na luing mr rda On board the big, tall ship
   
Cha ghabh mi fhin an tillear I will not take the tailor
Cha ghabh, cha ghabh, chan ill leam I will not, I don't want him
   
Cha ghabh mi fhin an ceannaiche I will not take the merchant
Bidh eallach de chuid chich air His burden is other people's belongings
   
Cha ghabh mi fhin an tuathanach I will not take the farmer
Bidh ruaig airson a' mhil air He is always chasing people for rent
   
Ach 's e mo ghaol an seladair But my love is the sailor
Air brd na luing mr rda On board the big, tall ship
